As some of you know, our development of the RouterStationPRO case took a short hiatus due to a bout of H1N1. That is some nasty stuff! We’re back on track and making progress…
The really great news is we’ve worked out the final design on the case (with your help) and production starts today. We don’t have an exact date on when the enclosures will be delivered to the warehouse, but it should be this month.
Just so you know, the cases must be cut, endplates manufactured, painted, laser etched or silkscreened, and undergo rigorous compression testing before they can be deployed. ( We’re going to let Frazier drive over one with his BMW M3. Ha ha! Just kidding Frazier. ) All of our manufacturing friends get their moment in the sun, give or take a few days, so it’s hard to say exactly when they’ll be finished.
Now the not-so-great news: custom light guides, especially in low volume, are breathtakingly expensive. We’re still exploring a few options to have them custom manufactured for less and will post updates here. The light guides will NOT be included in the first version of the PRO kits, but will be available separately once we have the “lowest cost and still useful” solution in hand.
We’ve added a zero dollar “yes I’m interested” entry on our website here for the UBNT RouterStationPRO Kit, which has everything you need to get started.
Ladies and gentleman…start your engines!
